Jack predates this by 30 years, and he was probably already dead as some believe he either got ill or died when he suddenly stopped murdering and mocking the police.

That was very cool. It's strange knowing the age of that footage, and yet there's a strange familiarity to it. It reminded me of something similar that might appeal. While it's not video footage, it's a series of color pictures from Tsarist Russia - and they're now just over a century old. They're the Produkin-Gorskii pictures. There's that strange similarity in them as well. What gets me about stuff like this is stopping and thinking about what happened between when they were created and now. That's when it gets really crazy.

To think, most people in this video are probably dead!
